Re: [xml-dev] Re: [docbook-apps] Small!! Lightweight!! xslt processorwhich is standalone!! and runs Docbook/XSL stylesheets?

Liam, while ksh93 is a POSIX and SUS conforming shell, it has enough
extra features which rival perl and python in functionality, including
compound variables (like C struct), arrays/trees, types (like JAVA/C++
classes), pattern matching (beefed up POSIX egrep, with optional
and/or/xor operators). It makes it rather easy to make parsers and
processing engines.
Just, some one has to do the effort, if all other options are exhausted.

Help viewer will only help if it would work with telnet and ssh, too.
